Cancer antibody; Developmental Biology antibody; Immune System antibody; Chondrogenesis Study antibody
|Product Description||APC-conjugated Mouse Monoclonal antibody [MEM-263] recognizes CD44|
|Tested Reactivity||Hu, Dog, Pig|
|Specificity||The clone MEM-263 reacts with extracellular (N-terminal) domain of standard CD44 (Phagocyte glycoprotein 1), a 80-95 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein (hyaladherin family) present on the most of cells and tissues (leukocytes, endothelial cells, mesenchymal cells, etc.); it is negative on platelets and hepatocytes.

|Alternate Names||MDU2; MDU3; GP90 lymphocyte homing/adhesion receptor; Hermes antigen; Extracellular matrix receptor III; PGP-I; Epican; CDW44; Phagocytic glycoprotein 1; Pgp1; HUTCH-I; MC56; Hyaluronate receptor; CD antigen CD44; Heparan sulfate proteoglycan; CD44 antigen; LHR; IN; HCELL; Phagocytic glycoprotein I; PGP-1; CSPG8; MIC4; ECMR-III; CDw44|
|Application Note||* The dilutions indicate recommended starting dilutions and the optimal dilutions or concentrations should be determined by the scientist.|
|Purification Note||The purified antibody is conjugated with cross-linked Allophycocyanin (APC) under optimum conditions. The conjugate is purified by size-exclusion chromatography and adjusted for direct use. No reconstitution is necessary.|
|Buffer||PBS, 15 mM Sodium azide and 0.2% (w/v) high-grade protease free BSA|
|Preservative||15 mM Sodium azide|
|Stabilizer||0.2% (w/v) high-grade protease free BSA|
|Storage Instruction||Aliquot and store in the dark at 2-8°C. Keep protected from prolonged exposure to light. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles. Suggest spin the vial prior to opening. The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Note||For laboratory research only, not for drug, diagnostic or other use.|
|Background||CD44 is a transmembrane glycoprotein expressed on the surface of most cells, which serves as a receptor for hyaluronan. CD44 mediates angiogenesis, cell adhesion, proliferation and migration, it is thus important for lymphocyte activation, recirculation and homing, it can thus serve e.g. as a modulator of macrophage recruitment in response to pathogen. Although CD44 functions are essential for physiological activities of normal cells, elevated CD44 expression correlates with poor prognosis in many carcinomas, facilitating tumour growth and metastasis, antiapoptosis and directional motility of cancer cells.|
|Research Area||Cancer antibody; Developmental Biology antibody; Immune System antibody; Chondrogenesis Study antibody|
|Calculated MW||82 kDa|
|PTM||Proteolytically cleaved in the extracellular matrix by specific proteinases (possibly MMPs) in several cell lines and tumors.
N- and O-glycosylated. O-glycosylation contains more-or-less-sulfated chondroitin sulfate glycans, whose number may affect the accessibility of specific proteinases to their cleavage site(s). It is uncertain if O-glycosylation occurs on Thr-637 or Thr-638.
Phosphorylated; activation of PKC results in the dephosphorylation of Ser-706 (constitutive phosphorylation site), and the phosphorylation of Ser-672.
